Nicklas Helenius: The tall Dane confident he can do well if he gets his opportun

The 6ft 5in Danish striker joined the club in a summer move from Aalborg BK but has yet to make much of an impression at the club.

The 22-year-old has only made four appearances and two of those came during Villa's short Capital One Cup campaign.

But the £1.2million signing believes it is just a matter of time before he makes an impact.

"At AaB I got better and better and at the end I was good enough to play from the start every match," he told Politiken magazine. "I am confident I can do it at Aston Villa too.

"I would be very satisfied if I get 15 to 20 matches (from the bench) this season.

"The goals will come when they come. I know that I can score if I get the chance, I am not worried about that.

"I have shown in training that I am a good finisher and they have told me that.

"I will get the chance when someone gets injured or one of the players play poorly in a number of matches and gets dropped.

"The manager has shown that he dares to do that and when I get the chance I have to take it."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
